When Jesus Shows Up

King Jesus is with his people in a special way when they are gathered as his church to do his royal business of corporate worship. “Corporate worship” is what takes place when members of the body of Christ gather together to do the King’s business of preaching, praising, celebrating baptism and the Lord’s Supper, and handling membership matters. From Ephesians 2, where we learn we are being built into a dwelling place for God by his Spirit, to 2 Corinthians 6, where we learn we are the temple of the living God, to Matthew 18, where Jesus says he is with us when we gather to do his business—from all these verses, we learn Jesus Christ is with us in a unique way when we gather as the local church.
